Re: help with monosyllabic script

Take a look at other monosyllabic languages like Myanmar to see how they work. From what you say, you may need to use Open Type features (not supported by Font Creator) to create ligatures, but perhaps you can find other ways without that added complexity. The anchor point is at the origin in the gl...

Glyph Transformer

As well as skew, add the transformation under metrics "Left side-bearing point at x=0"

There are other transformations too, and they are all adjustable.

No problem. It is called a composite glyph. From the glyph edit window in an empty new glyph choose "Glyph" from the insert menu. Browse and double-click to insert the "a". Then Insert, Glyph, again. Browse and double-click to insert the accent. Position the accent using guidelines to align correctl...

This is a beyond my knowledge, but I think you will find that windows will rotate fonts about the origin. So you have to design your glyphs centred around the origin, not like most normal glyphs which are above, and to the right of the origin. The Glyph Transformation feature makes it easy to rotate...

changing a regular font to italic

I just tested with a Devanagari font. First, make sure you have the latest version of Font Creator from the announcements forum. Open your font. Don't select any glyphs unless you want to leave some glyphs without a slant. From the tools menu, select Glyph Transformer Remove all transformatons from ...

Thank you for taking the trouble. I'll try posting on the Serif forum. Edit: It seems that it is not a bug, but a limit imposed by postscript standards. The postscript font name is limited to 29 characters according to this post on the Serif forum I even contributed to that thread, but failed to rem...

Include Full Font Name:

"Skt GoudyOldStyleBT Bold Italic" = 31 characters :?:

The Font Family name is "Skt GoudyOldStyleBT" which is much less.

I renamed them all again, this time to: Skt GoudyOldStyle This worked fine, so it seems that it could be a problem with the length of the name. One final test to add the BT back in again. Confirmed "Font Skt GoudyOldStyleBT Bold Italic can't be found - Text will be output as curves" Apparently a nam...

I'm still baffled by this. I'm producing the PDF from Serif Page Plus 9. I can change the font for the whole document easily with select all without changing the typestyles - bold, italic, bold-italic, etc. Times New Roman worked fine. Skt Palermo worked fine Skt Garland worked fine Skt GoudyOldStyl...

In the end I changed every occurence of bold-italic in my document to bold, but this is not a solution that I would recommend.

Doesn't anyone know what might be causing this?

Problem with PDF Output

When I produce a PDF, I get this error message "Font Skt Goudy Old Style BT with style Bold, Italic can't be found - Text will be output as curves." The font is definitely installed. I have edited the fonts again, using autorenaming to ensure that all the names match correctly. I checked the Unicode...

Replies: 4
Views: 5000

If the diacritic is just zero width, Word should put it in the same position as the next character. To overlay the previous character you also need a negative left side-bearing. The advantage of creating composites is that you can define the precise position of the diacritic. Sometimes one may find ...

Assuming that you always and only want to use the alternate y after certain letters. the right way is to use Open Type features, which are not included in Font Creator. A work around that may satisfy your needs would be to assign the alternate y to ý or ÿ then select the International US keyboard an...
